Morning Peeps I'm sorry my blog visits have been patchy this week, lets just say it's not been the most straightforward of weeks and my time has been diverted elsewhere thanks to the malicious activities of one sad crafter spreading a net of inexactitude. If I needed reminding why I don't do FB, this was it. But myself and my team mates at my three challenges really appreciate the kind words of support we have received from so many of you.
So time for a new challenge at Allsorts and this week Mervi would like to see cards for any 'Celebration' but not Birthdays. Our prize come from Chocolate Baroque and I have a few more CB shares further down from my post on the CB blog yesterday.
Lesley will be back on The Craft Store on Friday 4th June at 9am and 1pm with different stamps for both shows featuring old and new along with loads of inspiration using them.
When I made this one for a TV programme for Chocolate Baroque I was trying out some new Distress Glazes, this one Kitsch Flamingo added over the CB Tuscany scene stamped simply with Versafine black.
Have to say I do rather like the effect they give but I think Ranger will see a good income from them as they don't go far at all. I have used the pot of Speckled Egg on just four creations and it's almost empty, but given the idea is to cover the whole image not too surprising I guess.
Around the borders I stamped one of the new CB Vertical Sentiments, matted onto coordinating card and an organza bow to finish.
Details of stamps used can be found on my post at the CB blog here.
Before I go, I need to announce the winner of the prize from last Saturday's post celebrating Allsorts 12th Birthday, the lucky recipient is Sarah (Mallows Crafty Bits), well done, please mail me with your full name and postal addy so I can send your goodies.
Have a lovely weekend all, in the UK we have a long Bank Holiday weekend so fingers crossed the weather is on the up and the sun shines.
